No plea entered by son of Mahoning County judge

Posted: Updated:

CANFIELD, Ohio - The 19-year-old son of Mahoning County Juvenile Judge Theresa Dellick entered no plea during his initial court appearance on a charge of aggravated assault.

John Dellick went before a judge in Mahoning County Court in Canfield Court on Tuesday.

According to online county court records, detective Anthony Murphy filed the complaint against Dellick, who was arrested on Friday following an alleged road rage incident in Canfield

The complaint reads in part:

"...while under the influence of a sudden passion or in a sudden fit of rage , either of which is brought on by serious provocation occasioned by Angelo Gomez that was reasonable sufficient to incite the said john Dellick into using deadly force, did knowingly cause or attempt to cause physical harm to Angelo Gomez by means of a deadly weapon or dangerous ordinance to wit: a motor vehicle. This being contrary to and in violation of Ohio revised code section 2903.12 aggravated assault felony of the fourth degree."

According to the report from the Mahoning County Sheriff's department,  Angelo Gomez of Boardman said that he got into a verbal argument with Dellick at the red light at Lockwood Boulevard and route 224 over the driver littering from his motor vehicle.

When both vehicles resumed driving again, Gomez says Dellick began spiking his brakes repeatedly to get Gomez to run into the rear of his jeep. Gomez tells the deputy that after he passed Dellick's jeep, Dellick began ramming the rear of Gomez's vehicle.

Gomez says to prevent being pushed off the road, he pulled into Stutz Drive. He says that Dellick also stopped, exited his vehicle, and began yelling obscenities.

Deputy Saluga says when he asked Dellick what happened, Dellick became uncooperative. He handcuffed Dellick and placed him in a cruiser.

According to the report, one of the passengers in Dellick's jeep, Nick Garritano told the investigating officer that it was Gomez who hit his brakes, causing Dellick's car to strike the rear end of the Gomez vehicle. Garritano told the officer that Dellick stepped on the gas later and struck the Gomez vehicle.

Dellick is the son of Theresa Dellick, who has been a judge in Mahoning County since 1999, and juvenile court judge since 2001.

Judge Dellick issued a statement saying she believes her son has been wrongfully charged.
